The continuum of trauma care begins outside of the trauma center, with our Emergency Medical Services partners.
EMS responders act on-scene to recover and transport critically injured patients to Trauma Center of the Rockies. The paramedics and emergency medical technicians (EMTs) rapidly assess the injury or potential for injury, start resuscitation and stabilization, notify the trauma center, and transport the patient.
As a hospital designed for trauma, Trauma Center of the Rockies worked with regional EMS in creating a rapid response facility most effective for receiving patients and quickly activating trauma assessment and care.
Our EMS partners help us safeguard the regionalization of high quality trauma response. We work together with ambulance services, fire, police, search and rescue and med evac ("air life") work together to ensure a strong network of emergency response for our communities.
